Here at Pure Beauty, we love this time of year. The UK weather is starting to get better, the clocks have gone forward so days are longer and we’re all thinking about getting away to a sunny beach in the coming months. If you want to maximise your tanning power while you’re away, we’ve got some great products which can help you to do this:
One of the best ways to ensure a deep, even tan is to regularly exfoliate before you go on holiday. This way, all of the dead, dulling upper skin cells will be buffed away, revealing the newer skin beneath, which will pick up a tan a lot more easily. This scrub from Dermalogica is suitable for all skin types and will leave your skin feeling smooth and polished.
Giving your skin a helping hand with this tan accelerator from Elemis is a great way to ensure maximum tanning. It stimulates the natural melanin production within the skin, which optimises your natural tanning ability. You’ll need to wear a higher SPF for the first few days because your skin will be more sensitive to the skin, but you can expect to be suitably golden by the time you leave.
Many tanning products for the body are unsuitable for use on the face, which is why Decleor offers a dedicated serum to help to increase the tan on your face. The serum itself is 100% natural and will prepare the delicate facial skin for exposure to the sun, giving protection and a boost to the tanning ability.
If you want a bit of a base colour before you hit the beach or poolside, using a gradual tanner in the days running up to your holiday will really help. It’s not like a regular fake tan so the colour will build gradually and won’t leave you streaky or orange! The formula contains green tea and red algae extracts to ensure deep hydration for your skin, and has a special ingredient called Aromaguard™ which banishes that annoying, distinctive ‘fake tan’ smell with a delicate floral aroma.
People often make the mistake of thinking that using an SPF will limit your ability to tan and neglect to protect their skin. However, using a sun cream will still allow you to tan, but will protect you against the harmful rays which cause ageing and burning. This facial SPF from Elemis is water-resistant and moisturises the skin whilst protecting you from sun damage.
